**Answers:**

**1. C)**Georgia gathered the pictures

**so**she could arrange them in a special album for her family.

**2. D)**Meriwether Lewis is justly famous for his expedition into the territory of the Louisiana Purchase and beyond,

**but**few people know of his contributions to natural science.

**Although**William Clark was not officially granted the rank of captain prior to the expedition's departure, Captain Lawrence more or less ignored this technicality and treated Clark as his equal in authority and rank.

**6. C)**A talks of problems in hydro power – huge expenditure

D talks of problems in
thermal power – huge coal (hence huge expenditure)

B & E introduce
another way of generating electricity and see it as solution to the problems
discussed in A and D – tremendous savings, economical in the long run.

All the sentences are
related except C.

**7. E)**

**8. A)**D must follow C, and E provides how the bilateral relation between India and the USSR evolved, It discusses D in detail. B and C are related too. All these sentences discuss how the geo-politics was taking shape.

Focus of A is on
advantages of New Economic Policy.

**9. B)**We need to use some concepts of Parajumbles in this. ADE, form a trio. E begins with ‘it was made possible’. what was made possible? – ‘the transition of India from lowest per capita to 5th rank’ was made possible.

Between B and C, we would
choose B as our answer as C connects with A. ‘Newly developing independent
country’ obviously refers to India being independent in 1947. B does not
connect with the theme of the passage.

**10. D)**E is the obvious starting choice – B tells about the objective of Policy – A further builds upon B and tells in detail how the objective is to be achieved: by providing competitive environment. C tells about steps taken to improve the competition.

D is the odd one out. It
talks about ‘Foreign Investments’, which cannot be related to increasing the
competition.

A) Quantity I > Quantity II

B) Quantity I ≥ Quantity II

C) Quantity II > Quantity I

D) Quantity II ≥ Quantity I

E) Quantity I = Quantity II or
Relation cannot be established

**9. Quantity I:**Time taken by A to complete 1/5th of work if B takes 6 days to complete 3/5th of work and together they take 5 days to complete 3/4th of work

**Quantity II:**Time taken by a train to cross a platform of length 60 km given that it crosses a pole in two and a half hours running at 60 km/hr

A) Quantity I > Quantity II

B) Quantity I ≥ Quantity II

C) Quantity II > Quantity I

D) Quantity II ≥ Quantity I

E) Quantity I = Quantity II or
Relation cannot be established

**10. Quantity I:**Number of days required by A to complete work alone, if A and B together can complete work in 20 days. Given that after they start work together, A leaves work after 10 days and B completed the remaining work in 20 days.

**Quantity II:**Number of days required by A to complete work alone, if A and B together can complete work in 15 days. Given that after they start work together, A leaves work after 5 days and B completed the remaining work in 30 days.

A) Quantity I > Quantity II

B) Quantity I ≥ Quantity II

C) Quantity II > Quantity I

D) Quantity II ≥ Quantity I

E) Quantity I = Quantity II or
Relation cannot be established

**Solutions:**

**1. E)**From statement II, prob of second sock being black cannot be known.

If we use both
statements: Since total 36 socks are there and prob of first being black is
1/6, it can happen only when there are 6 black socks in the drawer to make the
first prob as 6/36 = 1/36. So we can know that prob of second sock being black
is 5/35. And then the prob. can be found.

**2. C)**Let cost of 1 ticket = Rs x. So total students who got tickets is 60000/x

From statement I,

(x – 50) × 60000/x =
60000 – 15000

Solving we get cost of 1
ticket, x = Rs 200

Similarly from statement
II,

(x + 50) × 60000/x =
(125/100) × 60000

Solving we get cost of 1
ticket, x = Rs 200

**3. C)**From I, C got 8000 so 4x = 8000

So x = 2000

So total profit = 6x + 3x
+ 4x = 13x = 13×2000 = 26,000

So profit% = 26000/52000
* 100 = 50%From II, 6x – 3x = 6000

So x = 2000

Further same as in I.

**4. D)**From I: 2I = P*6*6/100

From II: I = P*6*1/100

And also I = 3P/4 *
8*1/100

So cannot be determined
from any statement or both.

**5. C)**From I : Find CP using SP and Profit %. Get profit

From II : Given SP
=300/100 * profit => 900=300/100* profit =>Profit = Rs 300

**6. B)**Divide both equations. So

I/II = 3x/4y

Or I = 3x/4y * II

Now y has to be > 0
and x has to be > y

If x = 2, y = 1, I >
II

If x = 3, y = 1, I >
II

Similarly we will get I
> II in all cases

Now x has to be < 5,

So check If x = 4, y = 3,
then I = II

So final we get I ≥ II

**7. C)**I: A:B:C = 10000*24 : 15000*24 : 20000*18=2:3:3

B=3/8 *4,00,000= Rs
1,50,000

II: Salary after
deducation = 20,000*12*80/100 = Rs 1,92,000

Hence I < II

**8. E)**I: Let CP = Rs 100, then at 10% loss, SP = Rs 90

Now if CP is 20% less,
means CP = Rs 80, then profit is = 90 – 80 = Rs 10

but given profit is Rs 12

So if profit is Rs 10,
then CP = Rs100

If profit is Rs 12, then
CP is 100/10 * 12 = Rs 120

II: Use formula MP =
(100-loss%)/(100-dicount%) * CPS

So MP = (100-20)/(100-30)
* 105 = Rs 120

Hence I = II

**9. A)**I: A and B completes 3/4th work in 5 days, so complete 1 work in 4/3 * 5 = 20/3 days

B complete 3/5 work in 6
days, so complete work in 5/3 * 6 = 10
days

So in 1 day A completes =
3/20 – 1/10 = 1/20

So to complete 1/5th work
= 1/5 * 20 = 4 days

II: length of train = 2.5
* 60 = 150 km

So time taken to cross
platform of length 60 km with speed 60 km/hr = (150+60)/60 = 3.5 hrs

Hence I > II

**10. A)**I: 1/20 * 10 + 1/B * 20 = 1

B= 40

So 1/A = 1/20 – 1/40

So A in 40 days

II: 1/15 * 5 + 1/B * 30 =
1

B= 45

So 1/A = 1/15 – 1/45

So B in 22.5 days

Hence I > II
